We received a few thank you notes this week that I want to mention. Teen Challenge was with us a few weeks back and we received a note thanking us for the offering of $475. They also sent along their latest newsletter that I have posted at the Nahatan Street board entrance. Some great things happening there to look at! One of the gals that was with us is also profiled. I am not sure if anyone decided to sponsor one of the women – I know we have several already being sponsored. The church will also be sponsoring one woman.
You may recall that we collected a special offering for our Compassion Child, Kevin. Those funds were going to help him and his family rebuild following the earthquake that devastated his home. Thanks to your generosity and God working through you, we sent a family gift of $890.00. We actually collected more than that but there are restrictions on how much can be sent at one time. I have posted that word of thanks from Compassion at the entrance to the Welcome Center .
Take a look at the kitchen and Veno Hall – the painting is progressing along nicely. We expect it to be completed soon!
To directly sponsor Meg to walk, you can do so here, https://giving.younglife.org/Views/evt/dsp_ParticipantPage.cfm?idEvent=664&idUser=84310 or giving her a donation in person! Most of all, please keep this great ministry in your prayers!
We’re looking forward to starting up two “Moms & Tots” groups for moms with little ones approximately 9-18 months (with plenty of flexibility in age). We’ll have a group that meets the 2nd Saturday of the month at 11am, and another meeting the 4th Thursday of the month at 11am in the church nursery for both moms and tots to have some great social time together!
Hope to see you at worship on Sunday morning at 10:00! We have an uplifting service to prepare you for the week ahead – wonderful music from our choir, great singing, prayers and praises shared and Pastor Kevin’s continuing series from The Story. Read along in Chapter 7 as Pastor will be speaking about the fall of Jericho . Meg has caring volunteers for our kids programs. Communion will be offered. Look for the Helping Hands envelope in your bulletin if you typically participate in this special offering that assists those with financial concerns. Coffee time follows in Veno Hall.
Prior to worship, the church parlor is available for a time devoted to prayer for our church. Please take advantage of this opportunity to make prayer a priority in your day! Speak to Yuniya with any questions you have.
Young Life (as mentioned above) begins again on Monday evening at 7:27 on the third floor. A great ministry to all high schoolers – see Meg with any questions please.
Ladies! Be sure and stop by the table in the Welcome Center and sign up for the NEW Women’s study which begins next Saturday, October 8th at 9:30 in the Ruth Room across from the office. The books have been ordered and I suspect they will be delivered today. The cost is $10.00 for each book.
